Portraiture

     Have you ever wanted to have a portrait made on classic black and white silver gelatin paper like your parents and grand parents had? I’d be willing to bet those photos still exist in the family photo album and look almost as good as they did the day they were printed. That’s because they were printed on silver gelatin photo paper which will far outlast inkjet prints that can begin to fade after just a few years.
     I love how black and white images capture pure emotion without the distraction of color and make the photo appear timeless in nature. I have had the pleasure of working with some truly wonderful clients over the years and always enjoy meeting new people to work with. Admittedly, classic black and white photography isn’t for everyone, but if you really want something different, classic, tangible, and long lasting, contact me for a session today!

Q&A

Q: What if I’m not happy with the photos?
A: If you are not happy then I’m not happy. If you do not like the photos when you see the proofs, then I will offer to either re-shoot the session or offer a $100 refund which will cover my material costs.
Q: Can I get prints made from the low-res proofs that I download from the website?
A: You technically could but I really don’t recommend it as it defeats the purpose of what we are trying to accomplish and in my opinion digital prints made from film scans don’t look as good as darkroom prints made on real photographic paper. Besides, the proofs will be a low resolution file and would not be able to be printed larger than 4×6.
Q: Can I share the proofs I download on social media?
A: Yes, please do! I’m sure friends and family would love to see them and as long as the logo stays visible in the bottom I am completely fine with sharing them.
